Adopt Rover & Alaska a Tan/Yellow/Fawn - with White American Staffordshire
Santa Ana, CA
*Please see their individual profiles on our website, poochmatch.com, for more of their photos* Alaska (white) is around 2 years old and weighs approximately 38 pounds. Rover (tan) is around 3 years old and weighs approximately 42 pounds. They are quite bonded and the best of buds! ALASKA IS DEAF. But that doesn't slow her down one bit. Rover is her absolute best friend and he adores her. She follows him around and tries to mimic what he does. They are bunk buddies and do everything together. They LOVE to play together and even sleep with each other in a large crate. These bonded buddies love people and are very loyal to their family. They like to say hi to new people and are sociable with strangers. They do well with other dogs, given a proper introduction. However, this also means that they would not do well in dog parks/beaches. Rover has a prey instinct and would not do well around small animals. They would do well with children over 7 years of age. Both Alaska & Rover love treats and are food-motivated! They both really, really, really, love affection and will sit and snuggle patiently while you give them hugs. Rover also likes to return hugs! Alaska & Rover enjoy hanging out with their humans and just being near you makes them the happiest dogs in the world. They are both goofy, full of personality and always up for an adventure. They like to explore and would love to have a yard to run around and play in. These buddies are both well-mannered, working on leash-training and fully crate-trained. Alaska was found as a thin stray with a large gash on her leg and a couple scratches on her face. Her rescuers opened their front door and found her near their doorstep. They searched for weeks for potential owners, but no one claimed her. She was later surrendered to us. It didn't take long to realize she couldn't hear. HOWEVER, despite that, Alaska is still one of the friendliest, most loving puppies around! Rover was rescued as a stray. When his rescuer was unable to locate his owner, he was surrendered to us to find him a forever home. He has since learned what human affection is and he can't get enough! When he came into our care, he had never seemed to walk on a leash before or even knew what it was. We took him to professional training to help him learn a bit of obedience for leash-training and his hugging. Since his appointment, he is doing AMAZING with his training and has come so far already. He's quite motivated and trainable. Their adoption fee is $650 as a pair which covers the cost of their spay & neuter, all core vaccines (Rabies and Distemper/Parvo), microchips and microchip registrations. If you're interested in adopting, please complete an application, available on our website, poochmatch.com, under the adoption tab. Please read the following paragraphs for additional information about our process. If this listing is still posted, we are still accepting applications for him/her. We do not do out-of-state adoptions on highly adoptable dogs; we would only consider out-of-state adoptions for dogs that prove hard-to-place locally. We cannot hold dogs, please submit your application when you are ready to adopt. UPDATE: ADOPTION EVENTS CANCELLED DUE TO PANDEMIC AND SOCIAL DISTANCING. Upon receipt AND approval of your adoption application, the dog you are interested in meeting will be made available to meet on a Saturday at Petsmart in Yorba Linda between noon and 3 PM or on a mutually agreeable day, time and place. All adoption fees cover the mandatory and non-negotiable spay/neuter, rabies, microchip, microchip registration, full sets of core vaccinations (rabies and 1 set of distemper/parvo for adults, 4 for puppies) and deworming. Adoption fees vary based on age, breed, size and the costs incurred on the dog's behalf by us i.e. medical, behavioral training, etc. and they range from $225-$495. COVID-19 PROCEDURE:In an effort to create a safe environment for our potential adopters and our staff, we have changed our protocols and procedures during these difficult times. Starting immediately, our procedures will change from what’s written on our website and other social media platforms. Our weekly adoption event at the Petsmart in Yorba Linda is temporarily cancelled due to COVID-19 and social distancing. The only way to meet one of the dogs/puppies we have available for adoption is through completion of our adoption application through our website, poochmatch.com, before 11 AM on Fridays. On Fridays when we review the applications, we will pick the best fit for each dog or puppy applied for and coordinate mutually agreeable appointment times for the applicants who are approved that week. Private appointments are currently only scheduled on Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday of each week. Masks or bandanas are mandatory; faces must be properly covered. With the overwhelming desire of the public to adopt at this time, we have received as many as 30 applications for one dog in just one week. Working with a staff of volunteers, we are only able to reach out on Fridays to the people we have approved to adopt. If you have not heard from us by Friday, we have selected a different applicant. If you have multiple dogs/puppies that you are interested in, please indicate each dog/puppy of interest on the application at that time so we don’t rule you out for another dog/puppy available for adoption. Please understand, we have an influx of texts, phone calls and emails that makes it impossible to get to each and every one of you. Not just for adoption interest, but also from veterinarians, people who must relinquish dogs, people who have found a stray dog in need of pick up, etc. We are currently not in need of fosters. Due to the fact that there is such a high demand, we are sticking with strict protocol to not adopt out of Southern California. We apologize for this inconvenience and difficulty to be able to get in touch with us while there is an overwhelming desire and demand to adopt at this time. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate through these difficult times with every intention to keep the public and our staff safe.
